Louis CKFor Louis C.K., 2010 may turn out to be merely an extension of 2009. The in-demand comic, was recently seen on the big screen in The Invention of Lying and on the small screen in a recurring role on Parks and Recreation, will premiere his stand-up concert film, Louis C.K.: Hilarious, next month at the Sundance Film Festival, to be held from Jan. 21-31 in Park City, Utah. It’s the first time Sundance will screen a stand-up comedy concert film, quite a feat with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock having made plenty of concert films combined.

Louis, whose second hour-long special, Louis C.K.: Chewed Up, was up for an Emmy Award in September in the category of Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Musical or Comedy Special, directed the new film, which he shot at The Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, Wisc., in April. Also next year, he will dissect his life as a comedian and single dad on the new FX series Louie.

    Louis is the Greatest stand-up out there right now. Raw, honest, and KILLS every night!

    I can’t wait for the FX show and hope brings home an award for his film. It amazes me that he isn’t a household name at this point.
